Mali

Known by the nickname ‘The Eagles’, Mali will be making their second appearance at the WAFU Nations Cup, though they have yet to play an official match in the competition.

They were part of the eight-team field for the first tournament in Ivory Coast which was cancelled due to the outbreak of a civil war, while they also made the cut for the 2011 finals in Nigeria before withdrawing.

This year Mali will battle Mauritania in the opening knockout round and look to advance into the group stage alongside the region’s heavyweights.

Listed 65th on FIFA’s official world rankings, the Eagles will know all about their opponents from Mauritania, having faced Les Mourabitones over two legs in the final round of qualifiers for the 2018 African Nations Championship.
